We had a break from cruising due to DW's ankle break, but returned to the Ruby three weeks ago. Even though the Ruby is due for dry dock in this fall, she was neat and clean. No rough around the edges could be seen. Been on ships due for dry dock, and this one was in the best shape I have seen.
We are like many others here and sail for the itinerary. As such, we have sailed other lines and found them in no better shape than the Princess ships at that time. As for the Mega, we have sailed the Royal and will sail her again next year. Love the fact there AREN'T all the gimmicks on board. If those are what you are looking for, then power to you, you pick the ship as the destination. Just shop ships for the latest and greatest gimmick. Mean while, I plan on getting off the boat in some destination I have never been to in order to get a "taste" of the area and see if I want to go back for a longer stay!
As for the Grand, is she due to go to P&O? have not looked at her schedule.
